Default Rich? Lean? Normal?

Alright

I'm wondering about the DTX 18. high speed sound.


Early I played with it and I got it going and when I gave it a lot of gas it bogged down. So I figured that was running to rich because the carb was getting to much fuel. I leaned that out, but ever since I got the duratrax I've noticed that when I get on it, it sounds really high pitch. Sounds like it's to lean but I'm not sure. Then you when guys say line the LSN up with the carb, are you referring to that as the nut that the entire LSN goes in, line it up with the end of that?

I have my LSN lined up with that bolt, and my idle screw is all the way to the right...standard setting. When my duratrax is just sitting there running the back wheels want to spin. Help with this also?


I'm asking a lot in this message, so just give me what you know lol.


Thanks everyone

Set the HSN first then you can tinker with the LSN. If you do it the other way around after changing the LSN first then the HSN your LSN will be affected....at least that's been my experience.

Your idle could be high as well which cold cause the wheels to spin.

Oh, I know the low speed needle affects the way the car starts, idles, and first takes off. I thought it was LSN and then HSN lol.


I need to do some experiencing obviously
